Due to the coronavirus pandemic, SNAP (food stamp) has increased its methods to meet the rising need of families experiencing hardship. States have been using temporary SNAP flexibility to:

Provide emergency benefit supplements

Maintain benefits to households with children missing school meals

Ease program administration during the pandemic

Offering these options have allowed states to aid recipients in maintain their benefits, while also delivering more food assistance to struggling families. Additionally, it helps in managing the rising and ongoing administrative demands.

Now that we are 5 months into the pandemic, states are offering more options to SNAP recipients. These options include:

  • Adapting telephonic signature requirements
  • Granting flexibility for quality control interviews
  • Waiving initial/ recertification interview and other interview adjustments
